Have you or a loved one suffered a serious injury or medical complication after being prescribed Tasigna to treat Philadelphia chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)? If so, you might be eligible to file a claim to recover financial compensation for the harm you or your loved one suffered.
What Is Tasigna?
Tasigna belongs to a class of drugs called tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). These types of drugs are supposed to block the protein Bcr-Abl, and prevent leukopenia cells from growing.
However, research has shown that Tasigna has been linked to atherosclerosis, a dangerous and life-threatening disease that causes plaque to build up in the arteries. When plaque builds up in the arteries, the path for blood to flow through becomes so narrow that it prevents blood from circulating through your body. This can cause other diseases to develop and can also lead to death.
Common injuries caused by Tasigna include:
- Limb Amputation
- Heart & Vascular Bypass Surgery
- Coronary Artery Disease
Tasigna is manufactured by Novartis, and although the company warned doctors and patents in Canada about the dangers of the drug, similar warnings were not issued to U.S. consumers. Because the company never warned Americans, patients and families of those who have been injured by the dangerous drug are filing lawsuits to recover compensation.
